Thanks for this, made my day! Listening to it now, "Animals were gone" is amazing.

Hmm, mixed feelings about 'accidental babies'. It's still beautiful, but it sounds so
slow when you're used to the live version. And I'm a bit disappointed that it doesn't
have the longer piano ending (and the 'f-ck you up' bit).

how gutted am i now. i did the trick, then, feeling rather happy with myself, i clicked onto the link and then pressed play. ONLY to find that because there is a problem with WMP on my pc (something is missing, or not updated, or some bad code, i don't know), it STILL won't let me listen to it!

i'm going to have to wait until UNI tomorrow. even then, i won't be able to use the pc's. oh man, this sucks!

grey room and the animals were gone are breathtakingly beautiful. I love Rootless Tree and Yolk.. All the songs. I love the cd, It sounds just really personal. soul searching, regret and longing can be heard throughout. Wow that sounds shmaltzy.. lol.
Just Beautiful.

but time is contagious...everyone's getting old....

and carvin... as far as him going out of key in every song...who cares... thats the rawness i think he likes to maintain... his most popular song is Blower's Daughter and that has one of the worst out of key moments and no one cares... but its your opinion... this cd is different and I'm trying to remember not to expect 'O' round 2 or to make it impossible for myself to like it...

with that said...

animals were gone and pretty much everything else has its fine points and i like it a lot. something i can put in the car and my mom wont yell at me for putting her to sleep. ill just put on rootless tree and wake her up haha, jk

I've been scanning this forum for a long time, waiting for 9.

I've not been disappointed. A beautiful album that's happier than O in places and more heartbreaking than O in others.

Damien Rice's music just suits me and I, it. I love this new album.

hahah this presented me with a moral conflict too. Decided to hear a "tester track" to see how the live to Studio transition sounded, so I picked Yoke, because I quite like that one, not as much as Dogs, but I didn't want to ruin it because it reminds me of someone (And I bought the album for that special someone). Then the internet spazzed out and kept cutting out, so In the end I got annoyed with inferior technology. I'm also annoyed at everyone gushing about it. I'm just going to wait it out. It's what people did before the internet, and I haven't been this excited for a record for ages.

yeah, i know what you are saying, but i find it annoying after a while. it's almost like he is overplaying the whole "i can sing out of key if i want" even though i don't think he does't it on purpose.

oh well, this album has grown on me a lot!!! i love it so much!!

Now I have listen the complete CD. And this is an amazing Album.
Every single track ist Wonderfull. Really.
My Favorite song ist Accidental Babies. I must cry if I listen this song!!
The only thing that annoys me a little bit is that Rootless Tree is not as powerful like the Live Version. But this makes no difference.
Thank you Damien for this great, lovely and amazing Music.

Thanks AB for finding a solution. I too love the album. One thing that popped out at me was the electic guitar that chimes in about midway through grey room. To me added a ton to the song

I know what you're saying. Damien's voice is not as strong as it is in the live version.

It lacks the power of Yoke.

I just listened to it, and somewhat agree that at times, song of the songs semi-lack that real deep personal emotional depth, that tracks on "O" had. When you listen to those tracks, you could feel them in your core. With "9," some of the tracks DEFINITELY do that, but some of them don't......maybe I'll have to have another listen or more, since this is a first listen. However.....

9 Crimes, Animals Were Gone, Elephant, Rootless Tree, Me-My Yoke- and I, and Accidental Babies, are my favorite tracks.

9 Crimes, Animals Were Gone, and Accidental Babies are my Top 3 right now.

I think the album though would have definitely benefitted by having "Then Go" on it. It was one of my favorite new live tracks, and was hoping it would've been on the album.

Still, it's a GREAT album, and I can't wait to go out and get it.

You must give time to the album. Time to develop.
Thus it was also with O.

Accidental Babies, are my favorite tracks
After listening to the album multiple times I have to agree. There sure are
some great songs on there, no doubt But it's not yet blowing me away
like 'O' did. About Accidental Babies: I was immediately in love with the
live version(s), they sounded so pure. My problem with the studio recording
is that I'm not really feeling it. And trust me, I so hate to say that. Maybe
my anticipation for that song was a bit too high.

Elephant, though I already had that one, is still a great song, as is 'Animals'
(which is starting to grow on me). I've started to appreciate 9 crimes more as
well while listening to the song in the context of the album.

Furthermore: Grey Room and Sleep don't Weep, although it starts out a bit like
Cold Water (or is that just me), is also nice. I love the mellow ending with Lisa.
